The Dilwara Temples of Mount Abu in Rajasthan, are located about 2½ kilometres from Mount Abu, the only hill station in the desert State of Rajasthan. These Jain temples were built between the 11th and 13th centuries AD, and are famous for their use of marble and  intricate marble carvings.

The five marble temples of Dilwara, are a sacred pilgrimage place of the Jains. Some consider these temples to be one of the most beautiful Jain Pilgrimage Sites in the world.    The Temples are in the midst of a range of forested hills, & a high wall shrouds the temple-complex.    

Although Jains built some of the most beautiful temples at other places in Rajasthan, it’s the general belief that none come close to Dilwara Temples in terms of architectural beauty. The ornamental details, spreading over the minutely carved ceilings, doorways, pillars and panels, is simply marvellous.  

Facilities are available for bathing, which is mandatory before Pooja is performed for the Idols.  

There are five temples in all in the Dilwara Temples. For details, have a look at the Wikipedia page of Dilwara Temples, Mount Abu, each with its own unique identity.
